Dammit, I want to learn this dance too.

Correction, I am learning this dance. I'm not sure what that says about my masculinity/sexuality, but whatever. :)

Well I have a few nerd things to my credit. My biggest nerd weakness though is seeing a movie on midnight the day it comes out. I have been guilty of this multiple times.

Along those lines, my biggest nerd accomplishment is camping out overnight at the theater to get the best seats I could for The Lord of The Rings Trilogy Tuesday. For the uninitiated, it was the extended edition versions of the first two movies followed immediately by the midnight showing of Return of The King. I got there at 11 pm the night before and we got seats at 1 pm the next day. I was third in line. I also got the exact seats I wanted. I have the film strip souvenir to prove it.

Other nerd things:

Level 50 Paladin World of Warcraft (Durotan server, look for Vindibudd)
I have built and upgraded my own pc for the express purpose of playing one particular game.
I am fluent in Mac AND Windows.
I have been doing tech support for 4 years.
I just read all the Harry Potter books back to back to back to back to back to back for the first time.

I wear superhero logo t-shirts.

Probably tops on my nerd-o-meter is offering to host and design a single webpage for a coworker as a Silent Santa gift (in 2000).

You can only imagine how well that was received!

I still can't believe I did that (thought it was a great idea at the time)!

Next on the list is going to a Star Trek convention in Plano. I did get to meet John DeLancie and my wife asked him about his musical background (he played oboe). It was kind of funny to see the trek convention rib Alexander Siddig about being one-dimensional (this was still in the mid-1990s) as a character on Deep Space Nine.

I went to school (cicra 98) dressed as Geen Simmons then Batman (both homemade costumes). But the nerdiest thing would have to beat boxing the Emeporeal MArch from STar Wars.
Grin- it makes people wonder what you are up to.

I cried after Twilight Princess.

Ok, not full-blown cried, but a few tears and that real uncomfortable feeling you get in your throat when you're about to cry.

For the Speech and Debate/Drama competition, I did a one-man show of the scene where Sybok takes Kirk, Spock and McCoy on a tour of their personal pain from Star Trek V: The Final Frontier. I brought the original soundtrack to play in the background.

Went as Gambit to X-men 3. Thankfully, I wasn't alone, but Gambit wasn't in it, and the movie sucked. There was also Wolverine, Cyclops, Beast, and Xavier; all of us friends. We even got an old wheelchair from a retirement home for Xavier (he shaved his head, too).

Best part was fooling the people at Burger King into thinking he was really handicapped. Them delivering it to his table. And then as we were leaving, him getting up and walking out.

This is an impossible question that will only lead to sorrow. So instead I will tell you the most recent nerdliest thing: while shopping for tile in Home Depot, my friend and I had a detailed conversation on the merits of turning a tile scraper (the big kind) into a zombie-killing tool. It was a weekend, there were many people around, no matter.

edit: I just got really excited that my post count was 42. NERD ALERT!!!!

Haha, I've had so many conversations like that, it's not even funny. I mean, come on, it's a serious discussion.

Used to be into DARKSTALKERS - The video game…

THEN I heard it was an actual MANGA series before it was a video game. So it escalated - I started youtube-ing for episodes and killed about 2 hours that I will NEVER get back watching the low quality episodes on my laptop when I should have been…I don't know, grading work from my students.

Nerd factor has officially increased once I hunted down the entire series and purchased it online a month ago.

CLOSE 2nd most NERDIEST thing:
Playing UNREAL TOURNAMENT all day at a w00t camp and drinking an energy drink (I thik it was called Ballz) for sustenance.

Summer job running a technology camp…had a great time actually! Skipped every meal except lunch - ordered pizza at 11 PM.

Collecting EVERY variant cover of Michael Turner's Soulfire and getting every one signed by everybody that worked on them.

That took many eBay auctions and multiple conventions.

I'm not surprised! You know your zombies. This is important, for the zompocalypse is nigh!!!
And yes, it IS serious.

Man, I think zombie nerdliness accounts for at least 26.7% of my annual GNP.

Okay, I'm nearly there…my friend Matt on the other hand can't just quote keep up with me. That's pretty predictible, he's the geek and I'm the nerd.

As I grow, both physically and mentally, so does my nerdiness. I am frequently anti-social, I do Accelerated Mathematics, I make up worlds and races and magic spells frequently, I play computer games, I read, and I frequently correct people.

I may as well be this guy.

Bawls addiction. (Previously mentioned Energy Drink)

Uhh…
This is something I wouldn't normally admit, but I want to win this thread. :P

The nerdiest thing I ever did was sign up for a Library Science class. My uber-nerd friend said that it would improve my research skills. Now I'm a Librarian, and very comfortable with being a nerd.

One of the nerdist things I've ever done:
At Anime Boston my friend and I shouted random internet quotes at the top of our lungs at our table (“This is delicous!” “THIS. IS. CAKETOOOOOOOOWN!” “IT'S OVER NINE THOUSAAAAAAAAAAAAND!”) then we went down stairs to the food court only talking in emoticons (“Capital O collen..thing.” “Lowercase l lowercase o lowercase l.” “ Collen capital D.”)

Man that was fun. :3

Uh.. Guess the nerdiest thing I've ever done was level up multiple WoW characters to 60+. I've got 5 of ‘em, 1 at 70, 1 at 65, 1 at 61, and the other 2 are 60.

I guess staying up until 2am reading the Full Metal Alchemist manga to catch up to the current chapters is pretty nerdy as well. Oh, and getting really excited whenever a new Doctor Who or Torchwood episode is aired (and then depressed when the season is over and won’t be back for another year).

Nerdiest thing I've ever done, eh?

There are just tooooo many to count. Playing MMOs obsessively, memorizing whole scenes from Monty Python movies, the list goes on …

Right now I'm doing something pretty nerdy. I'm spending hours researching Arabic names for a bit part that may not even show up in my comic.

The nerdiest thing eh? I use to collect things when I was younger, like rocks and gem stones, and even troll dolls. YIKES! The rocks I can understand but I don't get what I ever saw in those freaky deaky trolls. I even had one that talked when I rubbed it's belly ><.

I must admit, I'm a fairly avid PnP (Pen and Paper) player. Got a group of buddies who've been playing on-and-off for over four years now. Naming the systems I've played: Dungeons & Dragons, GURPS, d20 Future, Aliens Unlimited, Mutants & Masterminds, BESM, Demon, Vampire, and a couple others I can't name off the top of my head.

Also, referring to a large collection of computers (I believe it was 7 desktops and at least 5 laptops) set up in a friend's house as “The HQ” (And that was BEFORE watching Live Free or Die Hard).

I don't play WoW. But I am an MMO veteran… specifically: Everquest, Everquest 2, Planetside, Star Wars Galaxies, and currently City of Heroes/Villains.

I think that sums it up pretty well.
